Jeremy Renner, star of upcoming films The Bourne Legacy and The Avengers, wants you to know that he’s not gay. As in he’s REALLY not gay.
And it’s none of your business whether he is or isn’t, but he ISN’T, okay?!
Check out some excerpts from his interview with The Hollywood Reporter after the jump.
The subject of gay rumors for years, primarily because he’s a ruggedly good looking 41-year old who’s single and lives with his “business partner,” (who he’s been known to flip houses with and who he describes as “like a brother”) Jeremy seems more than a little bugged by the speculation.
Jeremy calmly explains, "I want my personal life to be personal, and it's not f--king true. And I don't care if you're talking about things that are true, you're still talking about my personal life. How about I go peek in your window, take what underwear you wore last night, whose husband you were f--king, and shove that in the megaphone throughout your neighborhood? How does that feel? It's none of your goddamn business."
Jeez. Maybe that came off less angry when spoken? Like you had to be there?
Of course, this intense need for privacy didn’t prevent him from touching on his relationships with women.
According to According to The Hollywood Reporter, “he had one five-year relationship with a woman while in his 20s and another that ended two years ago after 4 1⁄2 years. He met that girlfriend, Jes Macallan — who, as her Twitter account reveals, married actor Jason Gray-Stanford (Monk) on March 17 — when she was 23 and working at a film festival in Florida; subsequently, she decided to go into acting. ‘That was part of the issue,’ says Renner. ‘I was going through the Hurt Locker campaign and she’s like, ‘Where do I get headshots?’ ”
Anyway, we get it Jeremy. You’re the straightest straight who ever straighted. And we won’t talk about it anymore.
Do you want to come flip our house?
